My wife likes the house so cold at night that I shiver underneath the covers

My wife and I met in chemistry classes in college.

We were both biology students and happened to be in several of the same classes over a two-year span, giving us a few opportunities to be lab partners on a handful of class assignments and projects. Before the end of that second year, I asked her out on a date expecting a negative response. She agreed and we went on a mini-date at the art museum down the street from our college campus in between classes the following day. We had so much fun that we scheduled a second date, and then a third. I don’t know where all of the time went, because before I knew it we were married and living together in a studio apartment downtown. It was a magical time, and we were constantly planning our moves to secure an actual house we could purchase and live in for the next few decades while raising children. We were lucky that we found a place where the previous owner had just replaced the central HVAC system. If you’re buying a house and the air conditioner or furnace are getting close to their expiration dates, you need to factor this into the cost of the entire property. The only thing we did was add an air purifier to the central HVAC system, otherwise we kept everything the same as it was before we moved in. The only thing I don’t like is that my wife really loves to turn the a/c down low when we sleep at night. I’m always shivering under the covers as a result!
